Hot on the heels of Inre Rydmen, the EP Swedish pair Tommy Awards released via Origin Peoples last month, come the remixes. Drafting in a cohort of the very best, this impending release will see the likes of Jonny Nash, Coyote and Mystic Jungle Tribe jump on the remix duties, touching original productions with their unmistakable idiosyncrasies.
Bartosz Kruczyński, the Polish producer better known under his Earth Trax alias, is another name credited on the release, offering up a 15-minute epic as he reinterprets penultimate track, ‘Hans Logan’. Gradually moving away from a broad sound that encompassed everything from grime to pan flute house, the Polish producer really honed his craft with the latter, making appearances on Rhythm Section, Dopeness Galore and Phonica Records. This remix, however, follows in the footsteps of the five-tracker he dropped on Growing Bin Records last year – a marriage of field recordings and captivating synth work channeled into a pastoral five-tracker entitled Baltic Beat, it feels like a continuation in more ways than one.
Oscillating electronics mesmerise and an arpeggiating synth melody gradually makes way for the marimba. Sweeping, elongated strums of guitar stretch out like the horizon and the dialogue between various melodic elements continues throughout as we bear witness to various transformations, but the meditative quality is consistent throughout.
The Inre Rymden Remixes are out soon on Origin Peoples.
